Lang Syne Irish Family Clan Information History Fact Book - Kenny
An unusual name in that it has both intriguing pagan and Christian connotations, Kenny in its numerous spelling variations has been present throughout the Emerald Isle since earliest times.
Native Irish bearers of the name were part of a powerful and renowned tribal grouping that held sway over one of the island’s ancient provinces, while in more recent times others have gained honours and distinction through a rich and colourful variety of endeavours.
On the field of battle, no less than six bearers of the name have gained distinction through being recipients of the Victoria Cross (VC), the highest award for bravery in the face of enemy action for British and Commonwealth forces.
The proud tale of the Kennys of both yesteryear and today is presented here.
